Coun­cil to the res­cue

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

LAST week­end at the Moss­man Mar­kets some of the stall­hold­ers com­plained of the un­safe con­di­tion of the verges of the foot­path.

On the Mon­day I rang Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil to seek their as­sis­tance.

I am very pleased to re­port that fol­low­ing some very cour­te­ous ser­vice, the coun­cil has been and com­pleted re­pairs.

On be­half of the Moss­man stall­hold­ers may we ex­press our thanks to coun­cil for this very efficient ser­vice. must have the same prob­lems, plus cheaper in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions.

Or­di­nary Aus­tralians like my­self will come here for­ever for a spe­cial hol­i­day or to es­cape the south­ern cold, but the pipedreams of Mar­riner are just that. “the Sher­a­ton will grow its port­fo­lio to its goal of op­er­at­ing 100 ho­tels in China by the end of 2012”.

Seems to me the Chinese in­vestors are pretty well cashed up so they should not ex­pect the tax­pay­ers of Aus­tralia to fund their pro­ject.

Those funds would be bet­ter in­vested in re­search­ing Hen­dra and other such viruses.
